from page B4
gance about their relationship with God, the people want
ed more and more without regards to the poor. Their greed
blinded them to the fact that the poor were also Almighty
God's creation! Israel's sins were many but the prophet
told them to repent and God would continue to bless them.
In Scripture, God often used natural disasters (droughts,
storms, earthquakes, etc) to discipline His people but they
would soon forget. The call to repentance was continuous
ly ignored. Sadly, the people's disobedience caused God
to tell them that His patience has come to an end; judg
ment is on the way. Amos' final message, including a
word of hope was probably given around 750 BC. Israel
fell to the Assyrians in 722 BC.
Lesson: Amos' pleas for the people to be spared have
come to an end. Israel is the basket of ripe fruit symboliz
ing the end of the harvest and ruin. The messenger simply
passes along God's decision. Their songs in the temple at
Bethel will be reduced to loud waitings as the people wit
ness death and destruction all around them. Amos lists
their many sins as economic exploitation, injustices, judi
cial corruption, empty rituals instead of true worship, lav
' . a
ish lifestyles, and arrogance. The people are so consumed
with selfishness they want the holy days to end quickly in
order to get back to their daily lives. Amos says that their
greed leads them to sell the poor into slavery and the
needy for a pair of sandals. They would include the "bad
wheat" with the good to raise their profits. The prophet
declares that in the Day of the Lord, the darkness will
take-over the day and the feasts will be a time of mourn
Life's Application: While Amos' words are specifi
cally aimed at the rich and powerful, we heed the warning
as well. Are we guilty of exploitation? Do we cheat people
for our gain? We pretend to care for others or is it a show?
God knows the truth!! Is our worship coming from deep
within or is it empty ritual? When our lives are going great
let's not figure out how to take from the poor for personal
gain. God is not condemning wealth but he expects us to
be good stewards. What is God's justice? Surely it doesn't
help the rich and powerful at the expense of the rest of us?
His judgment will come when He decides. The best that
we can do is to examine "the man in the mirror", repent
and do better. When His patience runs His course after
giving us chances to repent over and over, judgment will
